Awesome sunset viewing. Colours are a photographer's dream! Sculptures have worn and eroded quite substantially since our last visit some years ago. The camp-site is excellent for off grid and has separate sections for vans and tents. Well done! Walks are great too. No dogs. 4 stars out of 5.


Moo nomads

Nice way to end the day viewing a sunset. Apart from the main statue, the others are a bit average. Shame the windfarm now ruins the horizon.


Lizard ears

Great views at sunset over the Outback land. Unfortunately, they are interrupted by the wind turbine blight on the landscape!
